Re-Modeling Esplanade Theatres by Soap Bubble and Grasshopper


Description of the building:

The Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay is a waterside building located on six hectares of waterfront land alongside Marina Bay near the mouth of the Singapore River, purpose-built to be the centre for performing arts for the island nation of Singapore. Taking its name from the nearby Esplanade, it contains a 1,600 seat concert hall and a 2,000 seat theatre for the performing arts. Esplanade theatre in Singapore was famous for the "durian surface". The metal facade in the top of the theatre could be turn on or turn off by electronic control.


Basicly speaking, using Soap Bubble which is plug in for Sketch up to creat dome or shed roof very easily and conveniently. just give what's kind of the grid you want work at and give the pressure, then u can get whatever you want. For the grasshopper, it's a plugin for Rhino which need people have good logic for creating 3D model,it's for people who are exploring new shapes using generative algorithms.
